Oh! to be a Costa Kid...
Some of the best things come in small packages - and that's certainly the case with Costa's Kids Program. From pizza parties and pirate treasure hunts to face painting, masquerades, and even Italian lessons, supervised activities like these are all in a day's play for kids lucky enough to cruise with Costa. And that means you and your family can enjoy all the fun of Cruising Italian Style. Morning, afternoon and evening events are scheduled to entertain children from 3 (out of diapers) to 17. Whether it's an ice cream social or a karaoke contest, Costa knows how to keep kids busy... and they weren't kidding.
Costa Kids is designed to accommodate children between the ages of 3 (out of diapers) and 12 years. It is an interactive program comprised of daily activities scheduled to entertain, enliven and amuse kids. It is not a baby/children sitting service.
Costa Teens is designed to accommodate children between the ages of 13 and 17 years. Please note that due to the lack of demand, this program does not operate on all Costa sailings.
The Costa Kids program will accommodate children between the ages of 3 to 6, 7 to 10 and Teens during normal cruises and between the ages of 3 to 6, 7 to 12 and 13 - 19 during Holiday Cruises.

Parents are required to escort their child / children to Costa's Activity Programs each day unless they wish to sign a waiver permitting their children to come and go as they please.
It is the responsibility of the parents to feed their children. Parents must pick up their children at the end of the morning and afternoon sessions for meal times. There are two exceptions:
- The Kids Buffet on Parent's Night Out which is for children age 3 or older
- Lunch time when parents are booked on a full day excursion.
A section of the buffet will be reserved for children on in-Port days and children's menus will be provided. Parents must present a receipt for the full day excursion to the Costa Cruise Line Youth Counselors. Arrangements must be made at least 24 hours in advance.
In Port Program
For in-Port days, Costa Activity Club hours are flexible depending on the cruise itinerary. Parents may be able to leave kids age 3 and older onboard while the parents go into port to enjoy a shore excursion. There is no charge for this service. Parents must make arrangements with the Youth Counselor at least 24 hours in advance and may not leave children without having done so.
